Samsung Galaxy S II gets two updates to fix auto-brightness problem and to improve Swype
The Samsung Galaxy S II has just received a pair of upgrades that takes care of some small flaws that marred what otherwise has been a hugely well-received model. The handset has captured quite a buzz worldwide, even before its launch overseas, with high Quadrant benchmark scores and videos showing what might be the fastest mobile browser on the planet.

The first upgrade improved the responsiveness of the Swype keyboard, which comes pre-installed on the phone, and also repairs some connectivity issues on the unit. The second update for the Samsung Galaxy S II fixed a problem that the handset had been having with its' auto-brightness control.

To grab the update, you need to hook up your Galaxy S II to the Samsung Kies app. And the firmware is rootable, which should put a smile on the face of many of the device's owners.
